an electoral loss would provide a wake-up call for the defeated party. but in the case of mitt romney, it appears to have opened the door to another dimension, a dimension of sound, a dimension of sight, a dimension of mind. a sort of twilight zone. in the realm of reality, there is the president who has just left new york's staten island touring areas damaged by the storm and pledging much needed federal support. and then there is the shadow realm where republicans are still stumbling over their loss by doubling down on the very backward, twisted, inverted views that proved to be their undoing. case in point, mitt romney. who told his top donors on a conference call that the president only won by doling out freebies to key constituencies. >> what the president's campaign did was focus on certain members of his base coalition, give them extraordinary financial gifts from the government, and then work very aggressively to turn them out to vote. >> that base coalition, of course, including young voters, african-americans, and hispanics. >> what the president did is he gave them two thin

the election on tuesday, on wednesday either barack obama or mitt romney will have to start worrying about the same urgent challenge, how to stop the united states from falling over the fiscal cliff. this is, of course, the second cliff hanger that the united states has faced in two years, the first being the debt ceiling debacle. how did the world's greatest democracy start functioning so badly? maybe the next president can try to fix this broader problem. but first the fiscal cliff. unless congress acts, the spending cuts and tack increases that would be triggered automatically next january would take 5.1% out of the country's gdp in one year according to the congressional budget office. that would be one of the most severe experiments with austerity in history, larger than anything greece, spain, italy, or the united kingdom has tried. in fact, it's almost three times the size of britain's austerity program. and the results of those european programs have thus far been a dramatic slowdown in economic growth and a sharp spike in unemployment. once again, the rest of the world watches to
campaign 2012, the romney rally in pennsylvania. the governor is up the microphone waiting to introduce the governor running about an hour behind. let's listen in. >> i believe we working with one of his colleagues, governor romney was in massachusetts and learned that the daughter of one of his co-workers was kidnapped. they shut the business down. they went down to manhattan in new york and started searching. they handed out leaflets and those leaflets led to her recovery from somebody that had her kidnapped and had her in chains. that was not done for the tv. that was done out of love of children. that is what we need in the white house. [cheers and applause] this is, without a doubt, a beautiful country. it is a country where we are at a decision point. are we going to continue to do what we have been doing for the last four years? are we going to continue to death double -- double the deficit of this country? are we going to continue to see more and more unemployment in the next 10 years? we have to make a change? are you with me in making this change?

"hardball" stars right now. >> mitt romney. kick him when he's down. let's play hardball. >>> good evening. i'm chris matthews in philadelphia. let me start tonight with this -- it used to be the democrats who were nasty to their losers. jimmy carter, walter mondale, mike dukakis, al gore, they all had to skip town to avoid the abuse they faced after losing. the fact is democrats don't forgive candidate who is lose. they try to erase them from history. they shoot their wounded. but watch what the republicans are doing this very minute. they're taking romney apart like vultures on a wounded antelope. want to make your bones as a prospect for 2016? just take a piece out of the guy who went down in 2012. get a piece of romney and wave it in the air. newt gingrich, bobby jindal, they're all doing it. our guests are both msnbc political analysts. howard, i have to tell you, this is something like i've never seen before. let's start with these clips of the sunday talk show circuit. republicans ran with mitt romney remarks that the president had won because of gifg gifts to minorities and young v

complains about it, but bottom line is it works. the obama team went in and defined romney early. they spent money in the summer going after him, and romney was not given a chance to define himself, and that works. again, campaign 101, and the last one is that you always have to rebut the negatives against you. i mean, again, it is fundmental part of campaigning, and romney let the romney campaign let that summer go unanswered, let all the bain attacks go on unanswer. on medicare, on the offensive immediately, and look where we are. we are pretty much in the same place with the house. the house campaigns negative early, and the results are very apparent that that, again, works. is just for the future, i -- i look at this again as, like, a learning experience. this is, you know, 2004 all over again. it just -- republicans are the one with the wakeup call this time instead of the democrats. those sides have changed, and we need to -- we need to look back at this election and, you know, again, review our turnout techniques and go from there. >> thank you, blaise. electorat nor, distinguished wr

want you to vote. the republican candidates by the name of mitt romney said bill clinton's plans would hurt the economy and kill jobs. turns out the mouth was just as bad then as it is now. -- the math was just as bad then as it is now. america created 23 million new jobs. our deficit had turned into a surplus. florida, we know our ideas work. we also know their ideas do not. because we try their ideas, too. we tried giving insurance companies and oil companies free rein to do whatever they please. you know what they got. we got falling incomes and record deficits. you have ideas that we tried and did not work, and ideas that we tried it did work. you would think there would be a pretty clear choice, but mitt romney is a very talented salesman. so in this campaign, he has tried as hard as he can to repackage these old ideas that did not work, and pretend there are new ideas and offering them up as a change. but here is the thing, florida, we know what changed looks like. what mitt romney is offering is not it. giving more power back to the biggest bang -- biggest banks is not change. a
% to mitt romney's 47%. that's within the sampling error making it still effectively a dead heat. our chief national correspondent john king is joining us right now. he's in ohio as well. john, take us inside these numbers. >> wolf, they are fascinating when you look deep in this poll. the president you just showed he's here in ohio. governor romney will be here tontd. they expect some 35,000 republicans at his rally. in this part of the state i'm in cincinnati tonight. when you look deep in our poll you see this one will be fought out through the last poll closing on election night. look at these two candidates among independents. governor romney with a slight edge 48% to 46%. again, that's a statistical tie well within the margin of error. the auto bailout is one of the things the president thinks will help him here in ohio. you heard him mention that in this speech. look at this in the industrial northern part of the state, across northern ohio where you have many auto-related direct factory plants, the president leads 52% to 45%. some evidence there especially among white blue collar wo
should say that yesterday mitt romney did can see florida. we do know obama well when those 29 votes. that gives him a total of 332 electoral votes. host: thank you for joining us. always informative. we are taking your calls this morning on what issues he wanted the president to address in his second term perry will go to the phones. sheila is on the democratic line from alabama. caller: good morning. i would like to see the economy get better. the second issue i have a problem with is the education system. those are the two things i would like to see get better. also, if i could i would like to make a comment. the people over at fox news and this glen beck character, i was looking at those people yesterday. they were doing a lot of name- calling yesterday. they said that the people who voted for obama were a bunch of idiots. i would just like to say that they are doing a lot of wining now. host: let's stick to looking forward for the next four years. how confident are you on the issues you brought up that the president will be able to get some traction? caller: i think it is going
mitt romney is going. he starts in des moines, iowa, ohio, pennsylvania, and virginia. you can count on us to be there every step of the way. >>> mitt romney ended his day yesterday in colorado at the rally in englewood. he had an admission about day one of a romney presidency. >> when i'm elected, the economy and american jobs will still be stagnant, of course, but i won't waste any time complaining about my predecessor. from day one i'm going to go to work to help americans get back to work. >> another big named endorsement for the president. he's now got the support of israel's oldest newspaper. they say obama is good for israel. quote, the outcome of the elections will be determined by the voter's decision as to which of the two candidates are better for america. but if any of them are vacillating whether hob has been a good president for israel, the answer is question. kind words by a big paper but the endorsement is expected to have little effect on the voters here. >> the u.s. >>> and in president obama's sprint to head a toss-up uks he made a stop in wisconsin where he urged
and romney was not given a chance to define himself and that worked. again, campaign 101. you always have to ask, rebut the negatives against you. again, it is a fundamental part of campaigning and romney, the romney campaign let that go unanswered. that was a problem and as you saw on the other side, we look at the house and they did the exact opposite. once they one once they knew they were to be a tax on medicare they went on the offensive immediately. and, look where we are. we are pretty much in the same place as the house. the house campaigned went negative early and the results are very apparent, that again works. and so just for the future, i look at this again as a learning thing. this is 2004 all over again. the republicans are the ones with the wake-up call this time from the democrats so times change and we need to, we need to look back at this election and you know, again review our turnout techniques and go from there. >> thank you, blaise. i'm going to turn to eleanor clift. eleanor is a distinguished writer and has published many books. she is a regular panelist on the syn
and for the people of our state. >> well, governor romney is on his second official day back on the trail post-sandy. chivalry is dead. at his campaign stop in roanoke, virginia, just last hour, romney was in full attack mode. >> do you want for more years like the last four years? i mean, do you want four more years where 23 million americans are struggling to have a good job? do you want four more years where earnings are going down every year? >> so this hour, we are awaiting a live update from new york city. mayor michael bloomberg on what has been a commuting nightmare in and around the country's biggest city. it's something the likes of which have not been seen since 9/11. we're going to bring the mayor's comments to you live as soon as he steps up to the podium. first, let's get out to our reporters covering the aftermath of this superstorm. cnbc's scott cohn is at the port just south of the brooklyn bridge. katy is in the flood-soaked hoboken area. we want to start with scott. explain what you're seeing in lower manhattan, how new yorkers are dealing today. >> sure, thomas. it really i

of what mitt romney needed to do was to start off with the 22 states that mccain won with 180 electoral votes. then you say, ok. he is going to win indiana. that gets it to 191. probably the next easiest they will be north carolina. what will he have to do after that to get up to 270? we still have two states out, florida and virginia, which were going to be my next two states he would need to win. they are still undecided at this point. with obama slightly ahead in both of them. basically it looks like it stops. he would have needed to do florida and virginia and then he would need to get into colorado, iowa, new hampshire. even winning all of that he would be three short of 270. it was pretty clear going into election day that a whole lot had to happen right for romney to get over to 70. it did not happen. it seemed to peter out either after north carolina in that sequence or maybe even florida or virginia wants all the votes are counted, maybe one or theoretically both of them fall to him, but probably not. that is where it was. there was one. back around -- looking at the sequencing
